“PR disasters waiting to happen?”

December 16, 2006 at 5:58 pm 1 comment

Close to 10 ex-campus mates, including myself, meet once every so often to critique media and PR trends in the country.

We are bound together by a rather common past, – studied the same major at undergraduate level, reported for the same student newspaper, we maintain more or less similar professional networks and are generally given to some blunt takes on the country’s political situation.

At the moment, my main contribution to our debates is a deliberately uncharitable take on what I consider to be flawed media strategies by both the government and the opposition.

“XXXXX is a PR disaster waiting to happen.  I won’t touch him / her, not even with a long pole,” is my common refrain.

Listening to my buddies defending some politicians, I would pay anything to have them join Alistair Campbell in the hatchetman’s Bible 🙂

That said, I do not see myself endorsing anyone for the presidency ahead of the 2007 General Elections just yet.

I, however, hold a select few of our politicians in high esteem; I’ll be blogging about that some time.

 A Mr. Moses Opado has written seeking my assistance in locating a Mr. George O. Okongo.

I imagine either Mr. Okongo or his buddies browse(s) the net and might somehow locate this poor attempt at blogging on my part, as I have no other way to assist Mr.  Opado.

George, Moses says he’ll be in Kenya next March and would like see you.  Si ufanye mpango ili you meet?  

P.S:  Does someone realize the commercial possibilities that exist in Mr. Opado’s request?  I mean – the “I’m looking for someone” kind of thing out of which you could make some bucks via some web forum or such.  Just thinking aloud.
